Do you ever find yourself thinking how you may improve your wing chun pak sao? If that’s the case, you’ve arrived to the correct place. Before we started Enter Shaolin, we uploaded some of our first movies in 2009 and 2010, and today I’d want to share some of those videos with you!
I am also going to share. The purpose of a Wing Chun Pak Sao is broken down into its most fundamental components in this concise video. In the martial art of Wing Chun, the Pak Sao is a standard move that can be found across all of the many Wing Chun lineages.
Pak Sao means: Slap block
This technique is usually used to stop a straight punch coming at you or a cross punch.
You could defend yourself against hook punches with a Wing Chun Pak Sao at least in theory. Having said that, there are other techniques that are superior alternatives that can be used to defend against uppercuts and hook punches.
When we practice the Pak Sao here at Enter Shaolin, we put a lot of emphasis on maintaining good wrist control. That is to say, rather of simply catching a punch with our Pak block, we are able to manage the energy of the strike with our wrists.
The obvious and only exception to this rule is when someone is launching a jab and then pulling back on their punch. Therefore, we would get closer to them in that circumstance.
Here is a simple training drill utilizing the Pak Sao and Tan Sao.

What is a Bong Sao? A common Wing Chun move is the Bong Sao or wing arm, which serves as a deflector. It’s done by elevating the elbow and rolling out the forearm.
PRO TIP: When doing a Bong Sao rotate your wrist first in the movement.
